Following her undergraduate studies, Marie worked in the homelessness sector supporting vulnerable adults in supported accommodation before pursuing her MSc in Mental Health and Clinical Psychology. She has completed core training in humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approaches and has gained experience working with people with a variety of psychological and emotional difficulties and diagnoses, including substance addiction, depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, complex trauma, personality disorders, and psychosis. Marie is committed to her continued development as an integrative practitioner drawing from a range of approaches to offer her clients a tailored treatment plan that takes into account individual needs, goals, and preferences. Her passion for working therapeutically in the field of eating disorders and body image problems stems from her personal experience of disordered eating. She recognises the impact that sociocultural messages and pressures can have on our relationship with food and our bodies and helps her clients challenge these. Marie aims to be an ally to marginalised groups and educates herself on issues relating to diversity and social justice. She is a member of the Anti-Racism Working Group within the DPsych Counselling Psychology programme at her university.

On a personal note, Marie is originally from Germany and moved to London in 2012 to pursue her studies, after which she decided to stay. She enjoys both being active and cosy nights in playing Dungeons & Dragons.
